Let's face it: A new car is a major investment. As with any investment, you want to make sure you're getting the best return possible. Mile for mile. Dollar for dollar. But when the average car loses much of its value in just the first three years, you need to take a hard look at a car's residual value in considering its overall cost. Fortunately, BMW has been recognized for its strong residual value by multiple major independent organizations, in fact:
Kelley Blue Book named the 2007 BMW 5 Series the winner of the Luxury Vehicle category in the Kelley Blue Book 2007 'Best Resale Value Awards' and the 2007 5 Series an 'Overall Top 10' leader in projected resale value.*
This isn't the first time BMW received such recognition. Kelley Blue Book has awarded BMW over ten Best Resale Value awards since they were first established in 2003, and this is the second set of wins in the Luxury Vehicle and Overall Top 10 categories in the past three years.
